Over 100 years since it was first published Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow addresses subjects which are still relevant today - perhaps more so! Being hard up, being in the blues and being in love are just some aspects of the human condition on which Jerome K. Jerome reflects in his unique whimsical fashion. These insights are not given for the benefit of our education however, for as he says in his introduction, This book would not elevate a cow. I cannot consciously recommend it for any useful purpose whatsoever. All I can suggest is, that when you get tired of reading 'the best hundred books' you may take this up for half an hour. It will be a change!

    " This is hard to find, but available on Project Gutenburg if you absolutely cant get it anywhere else. Oh how I adore Mr. Jerome!! I came across this book first of all of his by complete accident and how very grateful I am to have discovered him! A turn of the last century humorist with a light heart and wry smile, he is an excellent choice when you want something completely different! "

    " I would give it 3.5, i.e., I liked it and loved some parts of it, especially On Being Shy and On Being in the Blues. At times its hilariously true, as in On Being Idle. But in the end, I completey agree with JKJ; this won't elevate a cow and one cannot cannot conscientiously recommend it for any useful purposes :) "

    " It's rare to find a book these days that'll make you laugh out loud. This book, however, made me laugh out loud every three pages or so. Do read it. "
